Careful What You Wish For is my first book from Michelle Escamilla and I must say I enjoyed it. I don’t think I’ve ever read an adult romance novel that focuses on making a wish and having it come true, all with the help of your very own fairy godmother.
Harley is a young woman working her way up the marketing ladder at her firm. She’s also got a major crush on the newest board member, Ethan Prince, who notices her attraction. After asking her out to a corporate dinner, he then barely acknowledges her after she spots him in the lift with another woman. In a hurry to meet up with friends for drinks, she hops in the first cab she sees and has an interesting conversation with the driver, mentioning that she had hopes for Ethan and could imagine a future with him.
Meeting up with her friends, they’re served by Matt, the waiter with the piercing blue eyes. Harley feels some sparks and at the end of the night, he puts her in a cab and gives her his number.
But when she awakes the next morning, she finds her entire life has changed. She is now a stay-at-home mum with two daughters, living in a very nice house, driving a minivan and married to her prince, Ethan Prince. People from her old life now mesh with her new life, including Matt. “Confused” is not a strong enough word to describe how she’s feeling. As fantasy turns to reality, she needs to decide what’s really important in life and learn to see the true prince through all the frogs.
Be warned, there is only one sex scene in the entire book that’s both quick and unsatisfying. But to be honest, the story didn’t need sex and I don’t think the story was lacking because of it.
There are also some problems with the writing.Read more ›
Harley dreams of dating and marrying her boss—I mean why not? He has it all. He’s a CEO, has wonderful looks, is charming, and people love him.
On her birthday night, with her girlfriend, Harley gets drunk and her friend hails a cab for her. Unbeknown to Harley is the fact that this cab driver has something unique about her. The next morning Harley’s world is completely different— like six years in the future different.
This story is perfect for wanting a change of reading scenery and storyline in the contemporary romance category. This is chick literature at it’s fullest and I loved it!
Sure there were some aspects that I had to giggle at because I just could not accept some of it, but it’s a light story and meant to be humorous so I rolled with it. I am so glad that I did. I loved the two little characters and the growth that Harley had to endure before she found her full potential.
Michelle did a wonderful job of showing Harley’s caring and compassionate side. I felt bad for Harley though because the author kept putting the her in worse and worse situations, but at the same time those situations were funny.
If you have been searching for a fun read that is sexy and has smoke and mirrors love scenes, then check it out.
This story had me guessing at times, not sure where it was going to end up. Harley was likable, and I was happy with the choices she ended up making. Fun read.
It's a nice clean romance with some cursing. Just long enough.
Harley makes an off-handed comment to a cab driver about a future with her dreamy boss. Little did she know that her cabbie was her kooky fairy godmother. After a night on the town with her friends and a few too many martinis she wakes up in a strange place with little ones calling her mommy - in her 'future life' that she thought would be so perfect. Everyone but her knows her 'normal life.' It's kinda like one of those dreams/nightmares about showing up to a school test but not knowing anything about it or being in a play that you don't know your lines to.
Once you've had your perfect happy ending & have ridden off into the sunset with Prince Charming, what happens next? This is the possible reality of the 'after' in the happily ever after and it might not be all it's cracked up to be. As she's learning more about the years she's skipped to get here she's realizing all was not so rosy and perfect. The big question - if she can even back to her regular life - does she want to? There's a lot of pluses and minuses in her new life and she has to decide if this is what was meant to be for her or can she go back and live her true destiny.
This is like a female version of the movie Mr. Destiny with James Belushi & Michael Caine - if you haven't seen it you really must see it - especially if you liked this book! It's a great movie!
It makes you think "some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers."
